Earlier videos in this series have demonstrated that the biggest powers in energy markets are blocking clean energy, and the biggest powers in food markets are stifling nutrition and local food security. Are there other multi-trillion dollar markets that are putting the sustainability of our childrens children at risk?
Back in 1982, editors of Entrepreneurial Revolution at The Economist issued a report on the first 10 years of dialogues on the coming of the internet. This report concluded that the worst crisis of all would be compounded if biggest powers in education prevented a revolution in job creation.
Specifically pro-youth economists see the coming of the internet as the greatest opportunity to design a smart educational model whereas anti-youth economists see the internet as an extension if the television advertising age in controlling and dumbing down people.
Job creating educators are going to need the courage to give up 4 monopolies:
number 1 what knowledge is researched
number 2 what knowledge is distributed by their teaching
number 3 what knowledge is examined
number 4 what knowledge is acredited
In 2013, the crisis of job creating education appears to be at a tipping point. For example, search MOOC and the celebrations around Salman Khan, Taddy Blecher and Muhammad Yunus hosted at the 10th Skoll world championships hosted at Oxord April 2013,

The search is on for: whose life experiences do millions of youth now need to interact around to create jobs and collaborate around the millennium's most exciting goals?..
Subject: valuation of economics= compounding the rules of 7 billion peoples lifetimes http://www.youtube.com/yunuscentre
Do you accept the view of economics as: a set of rules around which 7 billion peoples' future lifetimes are organised? If you do, it seems important that economists have a particular type of profile - an open mindset, one that seeks out diversity, inclusion, integration. One that frees each market's most sustainable purpose for future generations?
For those interested in transparently mapping economics- indeed what futures are possible for humans to create, we recommend looking at how the word entrepreneur first came into your mother tongue
Entrepreneur is a French word. It was first used around 1800. It refers to the challenges that the peoples face when their nation's economy has come to a dead end because a small number of people were monopolising all the productive assets.
A diary of the innovation challenges faced by entrepreneurs has been maintained for 170 years- it is called The Economist! Why is the 2010s turning out to be an extraordinary time for more and more people to need to take back their nation's economy?
Answers are to be found in two surveys written in The Economist in the early 1970s online library of norman macrae .
Specifically The Next 40 Years written in 1972 and Entrepreneurial Revolution written in 1976. The hypothesis of these surveys is: the net generation will face the greatest simultaneous and worldwide innovation challenges ever known to our human race
The 1972 survey "The Next 40 Years" catalogues rules economists had made during the 20th century which would be unsustainable as peoples became more connected than separated. The 1976 survey boldly goes where no economist had been before. It discusses how the biggest organisational typologies of the 20th C, be they corporate, government or non-government, are non-sustainable as far as the net generation are concerned. It went on say that the most exciting innovation and valuation challenges ever faced would be how to innovate these organisational typologies
If you do decide to read these surveys, it is important to take a non-partisan view. This is essential to discussing how to reform economies, and was laid down by the founder of The Economist James Wilson in 1843, and was confirmed by such classic works as Keynes General Theory written in the 1930s
Norman Macrae Foundation is searching for partners in a curriculum of economics for 11 year olds. We believe that one starting point will be to compete the sentence - Economies go wrong WHEN...
We suggest a candidate for the top of this list will be: WHEN political parties and vested interests fight over economic truths instead of designing/mediating debates in which all of the people especially youth have an equal voice.
when you search for the greatest purpose practioners with a particular market knowhow have sustained across generations:
its never been achievable by governments or ngos
it is necessary to have a transparent income generating model but that does not mean the positive cashflow has to:
1 be paid out in dividends
2 has to be 100% owned by so global top group as opposed to be invesyted back in the communities where the work is done
while dr yunus proposes 100% social owned model- there would be room for anything up to 51% owned by those who accelerate the purpose most locally and interlocally
